Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear deep amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of chestnuts, slight farmyard, a little caramel and subtle earthy hops. Taste of caramel, some toffee, slight chestnuts, a little spiciness, a hint of dark chocolate and subtle earthy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, dark chocolate, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A smooth, malty bitter. Gets more nuttier and hoppier through the pint. Good attempt but not my kind of bitter. mr_h (5718) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2016
